We practice law here.

Our office is a renovated historic church in downtown Salem, Oregon.

Our attorneys place a high value on the pursuit of legal excellence, personal integrity, and community service.

Founded as DeArmond & Young, LLP, our firm’s roots in Salem, Oregon go back to 1949, but we have grown to serve clients across the country.

Kenneth Sherman, Sr. joined the firm in 1953 and served prominently in the Salem business and legal communities throughout his tenure at the firm. Kenneth Sherman, Sr. retired from the practice of law in 2002.

Kenneth Sherman, Jr. joined the firm in 1974. Ken’s embodiment of the firm’s values of integrity and excellence, as well as his extensive community service have helped to make the Sherman name well-known in the Salem business community.
